    We received our membership packs. My son and I just got the general seating one for $150. Not that I would choose to sit there. I'd always try and upgrade. I was going to get the better one on the old Cronin Stand but with his rep soccer commitments, I would have missed many games.

    The pack is shithouse and a f**king disgrace especially when you compare it to other clubs like what you get from Souths or the Bulldogs. I recall Melbourne's is also great value.

    Don’t understand why we can’t get it right.

    Have we ever got it right? I did the distance membership thing for 10+ years and don’t remember any of the gifts being good

    I still have a shitty key ring from about 2003 (with the old logo) and a shitty little foam football that I ocassionally throw at family members when they are asleep on the couch.

    But other than that I would have been better off donating money directly to the club instead and just paying for seats on an as needs basis.

    No we haven't. The last time we got it right was when Fitzy offered life or perpetual leagues club membership for a one-off fee back in the late 90's.

    I love our club but we have been led by palookas for an eternity.

    You and I need to take over. We’d have the place humming.

    I never expect anything good in those member packs. For me, I’m pretty much just paying for the ticket anyway and the pack is just an added extra that I don’t really care about.
    I can see why those non-ticketed members would be pissed at them though. Pay your money and don’t get much back for it.

    I think we 3 were more interested in encouraging membership of the PDRLC when it existed, not ticketed membership so you can watch the games (which personally I don't care if you do or don't) ... mincer!

    So i went from a Family (6) non-ticketed to a 1 Adult GA with 1 Child Free for $150.
    Yeah the pack is limited but not worried about that, i got a Cap, Key ring, Sticker and lanyard.
    Might get to 2-3 games at the new stadium so i think it's worth it as non-ticketed for me and the boy would have been $160 anyway.
    And i get seats at the opening game on easter monday that's the main reason i did it.

    I did the same, GA membership mostly because I want to be there for the first game at new Stadium. Correct me if I am wrong, but I am imagining that it will be a large crowd and you will need to arrive pretty early for GA seating? Does anyone know if there will be curtain raiser games on that day?

    Not sure, Maybe Wollongong people get priority :D. Its a non ticketed membership,

    I must admit I had no idea what was in the pack, I'm automatically in every year
    the scarf inclusion surprised me a bit o_O

    Already worn my 2019 cap down Crown street hoping to bump into Corey :D

    Both my greyhounds are members. They even get the birthday cards signed by players. Bevan French sent a message to my dogs on their birthday saying how much he wants to meet them.
